AOC Goes Berserk After Fetterman Compares Her, MTG’s Shouting Match To Jerry Springer Show [WATCH]

The House’s Oversight and Judiciary Committees had originally been convened Thursday to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt.

Things went from annoyingly vapid to full-on “Idiocracy” in Congress during a late-night House Oversight committee meeting on the markup of a resolution to hold Biden Administration Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress, a resolution championed by many conservatives disgusted over his handling of the border crisis. Even Sen. John Fetterman compared the embarrassing incident to the Jerry Springer Show.

Particularly, the event resembled “Idiocracy,” many on X (formerly Twitter) argued, because numerous representatives, namely Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Jasmine Crockett cattily sniped at each other in an argument that turned into a shouting match, with nothing of substance discussed and ridiculous, ad-hominem barbs exchanged.

As background, “The Jerry Springer Show,” which Sen. Fetterman compared the incident to, is a decades-running reality show that features ridiculous family and interpersonal drama. It is described on Apple TV as “Loaded with bleeped profanity and guests who aren’t afraid to embarrass themselves on national TV, ‘Jerry Springer’ features a host who is the anti-Oprah, aiming his show squarely at viewers who rubberneck at traffic accidents.”

Sen. Fetterman, commenting on the embarrassing shouting match and insult exchange in a post on X that included a screenshot of a CNN headline about the ridiculous incident, said that to compare it to the reality show would be an insult to that show. He wrote, “In the past, I’ve described the U.S. House as The Jerry Springer Show. Today, I’m apologizing to The Jerry Springer Show.”

Rep. AOC then angrily attacked him on X with a wild post in which she bizarrely accused him of not being sufficiently against “racism and misogyny” and suggested that he had become a “bully.” She began by saying, “I understand you likely would not have stood up for your colleague and seem to be confused about racism and misogyny being a “both sides” issue.”

Continuing, she said, “But I stand up to bullies, instead of becoming one.” She then suggested that Sen. Fetterman doesn’t stand up for “the women of Pennsylvania,” writing, “And to the women of Pennsylvania: I’d stand up for you too.” She concluded by saying, “Enjoy your Friday.”

Responding to her attacks in comments to Fox News Digital, Sen. Fetterman’s office did not apologize and instead called the incident “absurd” and “unhinged.” His office said, “John responded to an absurd screaming match of personal attacks in an unhinged House committee hearing.”

The incident that sparked the fiery exchange began when Rep. Crockett asked Rep. MTG, “Do you know what we’re here for?” MTG fired back, “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading.” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer pleaded for order as the committee groaned with annoyance at the nonsense.Undeterred,

Rep. AOC jumped into the fray and snapped, “I do have a point of order, and I would like to move to take down Ms. Green’s words. That is absolutely unacceptable. How dare you attack the physical appearance of another person… move her words down.” MTG said, “Are your feelings hurt?” and AOC fired back, “Oh girl, baby girl! Don’t even play! ”Watch them here:

Rep. Crockett later complained about the incident on X, saying, “So MTG wanted to talk about my appearance in COMMITTEE?! It’s against the rules to do…She refused to apologize! 

The chairman ruled that it was ok…AND I asked for clarification about what qualifies as “engaging in personalities” & basically wanted to know if I could talk shit about her appearance as… well… y’all know what she looks like, right? PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES! This is what happens when mentally deficient people who can’t read and follow rules or just don’t give a damn… somehow end up in CONGRESS!”
